A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS
A highly skilled factory located in Cape Town and established way back in 1952. What we love most about this plant is that they are a family run business and operate as such, with their core operations in quality leather goods manufacturing.

They pride themselves on locally crafted fine genuine leather handbags and fashion belts. It employs over 150+ permanent employees, experienced craftsmen and women with over 20 years of individual experience.

Chris, the owner is devoted to developing & implementing strategies to assist upcoming independent designers as well as larger corporations with sustainable growth and value creation. Whenever we pop in to the factory, we can feel the intense passion, meticulous attention and love for their surrounding peers, as well as the product they are working on.

GENERATION LOVE
This incredibly inspiring and iconic Millinery (hat) factory was established exactly 83 years ago in 1936, we obviously have a thing for family run businesses & generational love. 
Harry Faktor took over the business from his father in the 1970’s. The Faktor family started in the hat business game on Buitenkant Street and then built the building in which the factory is still currently in (How amazing is that?).
Crystal Birch became a Director of the business in 2018, resuscitating the factory with her vibrant energy, colourful heart and boldly coloured hair. We pay homage to the skilled milliners that use their gifted hands to pour love into each stitch to adorn our heads and make us feel stellar.
